PURPOSE

Our mission is to create education that supports life.

The Earthbound Creation Story

 

Through years of experimenting with solutionary teaching and learning - we knew first-hand that learning can be dynamic, that students can be challenged to their very core, and that educators and students can not only learn together, but can change the world together.

 

After working as colleagues at Green School, Bali, we tested these notions by designing and running EARTHBOUND traveling semester. With 18 young people, we embarked on a 4-month adventure through Indonesia, Greece, Italy, and Morocco studying climate change stories through the theme of “The Rise and Fall of Civilizations Past and Present”.

 

 

 

Everyone involved was cracked open by the power of this immersive experience. This traveling micro-school was an ambitious dream, but the reality was more moving than we could have imagined. Everywhere Earthbound went, we found communities hungry for this kind of learning, eager to give youth a milieu to study and develop important life skills, and asking us for help in starting programs in their communities.

Through our holistic assets-based approach, we offer the following services:

  • Unique school framework creation

  • Custom course and program creation

  • Consultation and management of school-creation processes.

  • Online and in-person training and professional development

  • Student and teacher recruitment

  • Education for Sustainability workshops

  • Customized facilitation 

  • Feasibility and sustainability research and reports
